Just another Newby

I have just purchased a '69 Overlander in need of much TLC both inside and out - my first AS. Actually my first trailer. Most of the obvious problems, I am confident that I can fix. Some items I will need to find are the plastic hinges used on the drop down doors under the bed and couch. Any ideas?
I just found this forum and have been reading about 5 hours now. I am happy to join and look forward to spending many more hours here.

Welcome to the forums!

I am sure you will enjoy your new Airstream! When looking for "parts" you can always check our classifieds here at the forum, (even post what you're looking for) check ebay, and also check out some of the vendors that are so helpful!

Good luck! When you have questions about fixing things, post a pic of what you are wanting to repair, it will help you get the best response!

Welcome Clockracer!

You have come to the right place. The plastic hinges should be available. Contact the vendors listed here and you should have them soon. Make a list of everything as you go along and you will get the projects going in short order.

These old Airstreams are a lot of fun!
